Episode #162H

KQED 9: Sun, Apr 6, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

Included: a report from Mexico, a place often in the headlines for its brutal drug war. Martin Fletcher shows a different side of the country: its burgeoning economy. Some economists call it the "Aztec Tiger" - Mexico's now the third biggest trading partner with the US. But with poverty afflicting half of the country's 120 million people, future economic growth is no guarantee. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.

Episode #161H

KQED 9: Sat, Apr 5, 2014 -- 5:30 PM

Included: Each year about 42 million tax returns - nearly one-third of all filed - are prepared by tax professionals who are un-accredited and unregulated by the IRS. After a plan to regulate these tax preparers was struck down by a federal court last year, there's more regulation on hairdressers than there is on tax preparers in most of the country. Proponents of regulating these preparers say this leaves low-income taxpayers, who depend on benefits in the tax code, particularly vulnerable. That, and the weekend's news, online and on-air.
